Title: Cake Pans, Caps Lock, Communists
Series: 1_million_words prompts
Rating: G
Character(s): Steve/Danny, Grace, Mr. Hoppy
Summary: kaige68 posted a list of prompts for 1_million_words. Here come the C prompts.
Words: exactly 500
Warnings/Notes: None. Silliness. Some misuse of language for the greater good.

“So,” Danny said, looking out Steve’s kitchen window to watch Grace play with Mr. Hoppy. “He seems to have settled in.”

“Do you still have reservations about him being an alien?” Steve asked, checking the cake he was baking.

“Except for the talking, he seems like a regular bunny. And he obviously enjoys being here,” Danny said.

“Yes he does,” Steve agreed. “Just like you and Grace do.”

“Can’t argue with that,” Danny said as he watched Steve slide the two cake pans back into the oven. They were still slightly jiggly in the middle which meant they had at least five more minutes to bake. He didn’t quite know what the occasion was, but if Steve was making his special pineapple cake, Danny sure wasn’t going to question his luck.

“Then why don’t you move in with me?” Steve asked, not pausing in washing up the dishes.

“I’m sorry. Did you just ask me to move in with you?” Danny wanted to laugh, mostly in pure delight but didn’t want Steve to possibly misinterpret. Nor did he want to acknowledge that he felt like giggling …well, like Grace.

“MOVE IN WITH ME,” Steve repeated, overly exaggerating each word.

Danny could hear the caps lock at work and had to laugh. “Are you bribing me with cake?”

“Nope. It’s for Grace,” Steve lied, turning from the sink to lean down for a kiss. “So. Will you?”

“Ask Grace,” Danny said with a smile. “If she’s good with having to come here every time it’s our weekend, I’m good with it. Although I’m pretty sure between you, the ocean, and Mr. Hoppy, you won’t have any problem persuading her.”

“Done,” Steve agreed. He dried his hands and went outside, Danny lingering in the doorway with a goofy smile on his face. Again with the internal giggling, watching his two favorite people in the entire universe.

“Hey Happy, Hoppy,” he hailed.

“Steve,” Grace greeted gladly. “Hoppy has happily habitated here.”

“Thousand thanks,” Rabbit replied.

“Thanks truly thoughtful,” Steve said. “Gracie, gave golden, grouchy, good guy gracious gateway. Said situation suitable, should Sunshine say same.”

“Same, same, same,” Grace giggled. “Why would we want whereabouts without widespread water? Apartments aren’t always appropriate.”

“Monkey makes magnificent mention,” Danny decided. “Plus presence prevents perseverations pertaining potential problems primarily precipitated prior proper pondering.”

“Huh,” Steve said, seemingly sensibly. “Response requires rigorous research. Coincidentally, cake counter concludes currently. Time to taste treats, to talk transitions, tackle tasks.”

“Yay,” Grace cheered, scooping up Mr. Hoppy. “Purple paint plus plump pillows promised!”

“Purple paint promised?” Danny demanded, darling daughter disappearing. “Conspiracies conspicuous, Communist.”

“Communist?” Steve laughed. “How does it make me a Communist to make sure your daughter is on board with living here?”

“I have no idea,” Danny admitted, reaching up for a kiss. “I just figured you’d be all insulted by it.”

“Next time, I promise,” Steve promised, patting Danny’s very fine backside as he proceeded him into the house that would very soon be their home.

D prompts detailed...later. Sorry, couldn't think of another D word.

I can alliterate until the sun goes down on some days. Others I have nothing to add to the alliterations of the world!

Thank you so much for the kind words!!
